Lockheed Martin has won a contract $155 million for Modernized Target Acquisition Designation Sight/Pilot Night Vision Sensor System (M-TADS/PNVS) systems for the Apache attack helicopter in support of the Moroccan government.
The Modernized Target Acquisition Designation Sight/Pilot Night Vision Sensor (M-TADS/PNVS) is a long-range, precision engagement and pilotage solution for day, night and adverse weather missions. The electro-optical sensor provides Apache aircrews situational awareness.
Work locations and funding will be determined with each order, with an estimated completion date of August 31, 2023, the US Department of Defense said in a statement Friday.
In November 2019, the US State Department approved a possible Foreign Military Sale to Morocco of 36 AH-64E Apache armed attack helicopters and related equipment for an estimated cost of $4.25 billion. The helicopters will come armed with Hellfire and AIM-92H Stinger missiles besides Advanced Precision Kill Weapon System (APKWS).
